Pattaya Floating Market

Pattaya Floating Market is located on the main Sukhumvit Road between South Pattaya Road and the junction to Chomthian (Jomtien) Beach Road. The area is quite big and it may take you about half a day to really go around it. I was there at around 2pm and it was really hot! Lets go through these photos and see if this place can be one of the places you should visit in Pattaya.
Operating hours: 8am-8pm, daily.

Anyone for these?

Traditional dance show

Ice-blended strawberry- THB30 per glass

Grilled seafood

Hand painted t-shirts and blouses
Passenger boat : THB300 for 4pax (9am-6pm daily)
Colourful slippers
Massage service is available,too. Standard price of THB150 per hour/THB100 for 30mins.

Muslim teh tarik stall
Prayer room at the teh tarik stall. Be sure to take 'wudhu' at the restroom in advance.
You can feed these beautiful lambs too, at THB35 per bottle.
Passenger boat: THB300 for 4pax
An interesting attraction amidst the shopping area: flying fox

It's only THB100 for a return trip.

Me getting ready. the feeling sliding across the lake!!!!

Khun Aini couldn't resist,too!

Thai style 'air batu campur'.

One of the many dining areas.

You can have your 'Thai' photograph taken for only THB390

'Roti canai' and 'roti pisang' (banana pancake)

When we came back to our car, we were surprised to see our car nicely covered with a blanket to protect the screen from the sun. For your information parking is free. So, we tipped the attendant for being thoughtful...he,he,he

Is the floating market opened the whole day Lynn?

LYNN said...

Yeah, Monday to Sunday, 8am-8pm, but the boat service and flying fox run from 9am-6pm only.

Hi Lynn, would you recommend bringing small kids (age 2 & 4) to the floating market?

LYNN said...

Pamela, there shouldn't be any problem at all;) I'm sure they'll enjoy the boat ride;)
